To repeat, that's fine when I don't require the use of my timer on my computer - which I frequently use.

However, since your a WI subscriber, you can turn adds off. To do so, go to "Edit options" under user CP and scroll to the bottom. There, there should be an option to turn them off.

Also, WI signs up for "Family Friendly" ads from google, so they don't pick the ads. However, I'm pretty sure they can do something about them. If you see an inappropriate ad on here, PM a admin with some information about it. (Page you ere on when you saw it, what it was advertising, time, etc. etc.)
I have my ads already turned off. These ads (like the baby ads a while back) somehow bypass that. So extra intrusive, and I"m sure can't be intended by Justin, yet here it is.

Hmm... I'm not sure how to help you then. I've heard that you can get something on Firefox called Adblock Plus, you may want to try downloading that, and seeing if it can block those.

You said you PMed Justin, I hope he can answer your concerns!

Default Re: OBNOXIOUS AUDIO ADS ON WI

I don't know what to say other than keep the volume down. It can be a pain though if you are using it for other things. It also shouldn't be happening since you are a WI Subscriber. Sorry that all of this is happening to you!

You should really get Ad Block Plus. Its completely free, and only takes a second to download.

Adblocker Plus is also there for some other bowsers now, I believe.

If you view WI in Opera, you can turn the Turbo option on and the ad frames will have arrows if you
want to see them, but are blanked otherwise.

It's frustrating. I view in ff with a blocker, don't/can't use ff for ww (crashes), so I run ww in the other
4 main browsers.

Too bad you can't block the volume output from a singe browser, even better a single instance.
Anyone up to the challenge out there?

Good luck!

actually, there is a way to mute Google Chrome.
Go to the Chrome web store and do a search for the Chrome Toolbox. It's free, and one of the features is a mute all tabs feature. Makes my life a lot happier as I can now listen to music & play webkinz at the same time!

I usually turn the sound off just on FF which I use for WW and keep it on on the rest of my system. But yesterday I did hear some annoying music and turned it off everywhere. Maybe it was coming from WI.

You should get Adblock. It is a really useful add-on for your web-browser. I think it's available on Google Chrome and FireFox (which are currently the best browsers out there)

Hi there, I agree. Those ads ARE quite annoying. Have you tried using a different browser? The problem stopped when I started using Google Chrome.

Good luck!

Thanks for this idea! For my mac Chrome isn't the best for WI but I might keep trying!

Thanks for this - I'm finding the "best" browser used to be consistent for months and now changes as fast as monthly with the various upgrades (which often create downgrades!)

Thanks. As above, Chrome isn't best for me for other reasons, but this is good to know.
